THE ALHAMBRA PALACE

The pillars are light, slender trunks gathered together in a pavilion at each end of the patio around tiny fountains. The muqarna (honeycomb) arches echo the protective role of palm leaves around oasis pools in the desert, breaking up the contours of the arches into small, three-dimensional, decorative elements which merge with the surrounding geometric, vegetal and calligraphic ornamentation.
